God's whispers

"A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise adorns knowledge, but the mouth of the fool gushes folly. The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good. The soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit. A fool spurns a parent’s discipline, but whoever heeds correction shows prudence. The house of the righteous contains great treasure, but the income of the wicked brings ruin. The lips of the wise spread knowledge, but the hearts of fools are not upright. The Lord detests the sacrifice of the wicked, but the prayer of the upright pleases him. The Lord detests the way of the wicked, but he loves those who pursue righteousness. Stern discipline awaits anyone who leaves the path; the one who hates correction will die."

Crinken Church celebrated the conclusion of our 175th anniversary by holding a fabulous community Christmas Tree festival over three days. Entitled “Journey to Bethlehem” the festival told the Christmas Story in a unique and enchanting way that touched many hearts. It was a moving experience for all of the community participants, the 5000 visitors, and Crinken folks. We hope it will be a blessing on all the visitors and participants, and might benefit other churches in our community and afar.

48 trees were decorated by local schools, community groups, & businesses. From 6” foot natural fir trees, to sculpted ones made from books, tyres and other materials, each told, with a Bible Verse, a part of the Christmas story. The trees included the Shepherd’s Tree, the Journey Tree, the Good News Tree, the Angel’s Tree, the Refugee Tree, and the Homeless tree. Over 5000 people from near & far came to enjoy this cross community spectacular. It was a new way of retelling the Christmas Story in such a unique & wonderful way! Admission was free but donations were welcomed in aid of festival expenses and Crinkens food bank the 'Storehouse'.
